Meditation and Quieting Your Mind

By the time you have finished reading this post you will have a complete understanding on Meditation and Quieting Your Mind and how easy it is to do! 

One technique is... You simply have to breath!

Your mind is in constant chatter...
Talking about all the things you need to do and what things you have already done. This kind of chatter can add lots of stress to your daily life. This is why  meditation and stress relief are important to your happiness!

Your mind doesn't want to give you a break, you have to learn to consciously turn your mind off!

Turn your mind off!
Try this great exercise and quiet your mind through meditation, breathing, concentration and the act of releasing tension.
Quieting such a noisy mind...When you are at your quiet space close your eyes and let your mind wander...
 Let every thought do it's thing, but be conscious of it's activity.
This can't possibly be you that's created all these thoughts, ponder on this for just a moment...
 It's time for you to focus on your breathing.
Let those thoughts go in and then out with your breathing.
Feel the tension in your neck?
This tension is created by your thoughts. Your thoughts that don't let your mind rest!

Meditate by letting go of the tension starting at your feet.
  • Breath in and stretch your feet by pointing your toes toward you, breath out and let the tension go...
  • Breath in and flex the muscles in both legs, breath out and let it go...
  • Breath in and tighten up your buttocks, breath out and let it go...
  • Breath in and tighten your tummy muscles, breath out and let it go...
  • Breath in and tighten your fists, breath out and let it go...
  • Breath in and tighten your arms, breath out and let it go...
  • Breath in and raise your shoulders to your ears, breath out and let them down.
  • Breath in and tighten your neck, breath out and let it go...
  • Breath in and tighten your smile, breath out and let it go...
  • Breath in and scrunch your face, breath out and let it go...
  • Breath in thinking of waves pulling back from the shore, breath out and let them come smashing in...
  • Create an imaginative spot where you'd would love to be...
*Do this activity slowly and really feeling your body releasing the tension.

Your Mind should be starting to quiet during this meditation...
The reason for this is because you are letting go and concentrating on letting go.
Your mind starts to quiet when you let go of the tension in all the parts of your body.
As you do this concentration, you create imagination and pictures that are more pleasurable for you
and your mind.
Once you have created this imagination, your mind has no way of thinking anything else.
You have allowed your mind to quiet and meditation has begun...

Once you get into imagination while quieting your mind...
Try to focus on that favorite place for a couple of minutes and then just breath.
If thoughts come in let them, but don't give them conscious attention.
Let your mind know that it is time to calm and breath and that's all that it will do.

Do this practice of meditation and quieting your mind for15 to 20 minutes.
